former president. twice barack obama won the white house by running against him, in '08 and again in '12. he's never carped. he never criticized. i think that has played well with people. it's hard to look back and say that iraq was anything other than a disaster, and and you can see the shadow and echoes of iraq in the disiks right now as we approach syria or anyplace else-- iran. it's-- you know, that is-- that was a defining moment for this country's foreign policy. >> woodruff: and for his presidenciy? >> yeah, i think it was the poeps-9/11. iraq and afghanistan, it's hard to defend the iraq war as we see it right now. i do think preventing another terror attack, creating that apparatus, that's on the plus side of the ledger. i'm not sure it will outweigh when history judges but i do think he gets credit for that. >> the one thing i do agree with david with is mitt romney lost in 2012 in large part because he at no point did not show any empathy. by 81-18 voters on election day said barack obama cares more about people like me than mitt romney. and they could have used a large dollop
to do is to engage the international community in this conversation. one thing obama and the white house has said the they want to talk to our allies, talk to the u.n., get that engagement. that is something we have seen them talk about from the beginning. they want to act with allies and the rest of the world community behind them. part of what they're doing right now is talking with those world leaders, talking with the u.n., seeing what that means. it sends a message to countries like north korea that we will be acting. to be the only guy facing a bunch of other guys, it makes it easier for them to make their point. host: seung min kim, we see a headline in "the wall street journal" looking at the delays in airports and the faa what is the latest. >> a new law has been passed to allow the faa to reconfigure their filing so you do not have all these delays at the airport. this is all part of the sequester. the across-the-board cuts were supposed to hit everyone pretty evenly, but people were getting angry, long lines, including theers of congress, so when delays started to get along be

used chemical weapons. the question is why is the white house waiting when president obama said this is a red line? the answer is that properly, as you were stressing, he wants to be sure of the evidence and also to be sure that he can take it to the u.n. and international forums to have legitimacy for whatever the u.s. does. the bottom line for the u.s. continues to be trying to get the russians onboard in a negotiated settlement which will require most solid evidence that bashar al assad has crossed not just obama's red line but vladimir putin's as well. that's where they are this afternoon. >> here's the president's spokesman today. let's listen to this. >> knowing that potentially chemical weapons have been used inside of syria doesn't tell us when they were used, how they were used. obtaining confirmation and strong evidence. all of those things we have to make sure we work on with the international community. i've been very clear publicly, but also privately, that for the syrian government to utilize chemical weapons on its people crosses a line that will change my calculo

. president obama said the use of chemical weapons would cross a red line forcing action but stopped short of saying what action would be taken. the white house is very concerned about the use of chemical weapons against rebels and civilians. but equally concerned that the weapons may fall in hands of extremist groups fighting alongside with the rebels. president obama on friday essentially reduced expectations that the united states would intervene in syria anytime soon. american officials fear that as bad as assad may be and as bad as the violence may be now, what comes after he is removed may be more chaotic and violent. as the debate continues, the rebels attack a government air base in the province today, while the syrian forces repeatedly shelled rebel positions in and around the province of aleppo. shannon? with the latest from the middle east. thank you. >>> distributors of videos circulating on the web claim it shows proof syrian government is guilty of attacking the own citizen with the kim call weapons. just last week they admitted the likelihood that syria used small amount of

that the assad regime used or tried to use chemical weapons. president obama said repeatedly that the use of chemical weapons would cross a red line forcing action but stopped short of saying what type of action would be taken. the white house is very concerned about the use of chemical weapons against rebels and civilians but equally concerned that the weapons may fall into the hands of extremist groups fighting alongside the rebels. president obama reduced expectations that the u.s. would intervene in syria any time soon. as the fighting rages on u.s. officials fear if the united states were to intervene and remove assad, things may just get worse. harris? >> harris: conor, thank you. a knife attack in new mexico leaves four people hurt. it happened in a place of worship. details still coming into the newsroom now from albuquerque. service was closing this morning when a young man climbed over the pews and began repeatedly stabbing the choir's lead singer. other parishonners may have been hurt as they struggled to substitute attacker. remarkably none of the injuries considered life thre
